Retrofit Upon Sale


As of July 1, 2013, the City of Santa Monica will no longer issue Retrofit Upon Sale (Bay Saver) Compliance Certificates 

The Santa Monica City Council repealed ordinance SMMC 7.18 (Retrofit Upon Sale) on June 11, 2013, due to the program's 92% success rate in removing water wasting fixtures.  The City of Santa Monica will no longer issue compliance certificates for toilets, showers and faucets starting July 1, 2013.  Thank you all for your cooperation and help in reaching our goal!

The California law SB407 is still in affect.  All properties being sold must follow that law for disclosure and/or retrofitting of toilets, showers, and faucets for all types of buildings.
